Private: Archive & Research


Thousands of documents, including 4,186 of the confession files and 6,578 of victims and perpetrators’ biographies survive to this day, providing a grim insight into the activities that occurred inside Tuol Sleng. The Yale Cambodian Genocide Program have spent many years examining these records, but thousands of the people sent to S-21 have yet to be identified. We may never know who they were or why they were sent there; only their portraits remain to serve as affirmations of their lives – and deaths – at Tuol Sleng.
